Is building a MQ cluster across 2 data centers a good idea?
could there be network and latency issues?

It depends on your requirements and the geographical separation...

...and this is a question for your networks people.

Only if you need to balance messages across the 2 data centers or want to use centralized administration; i.e. the reasons you use an MQ cluster.

No, networks are magic and the electrons/photons moving down them are not subject to the laws of physics.

Of course there's going to be network and latency issues unless your company has done something really odd like putting them next to each other. If they're positioned for DR resiliency they're possibly a good distance apart, if they're positioned to service 2 different geographic regions they could be on other sides of the planet.

As my worthy associate correctly points out, speak to your network people. Even if the data centers are geographically close, they may not want MQ chatting over the link synchronizing full repositories if (for example) they're using the link to perform near real time bidirectional database replication between the 2 sites.
